Dear Noriko, We thank you very much for introducing us to the normal life of a Japanese in Tokyo. You took us to geographical places we never would have found ourselves and with your personal presentation of what we saw, smelled and felt you gave us an impression for life. We appreciated very much that we could discuss many topics during our tour and put Japanese way of life compared to other ways of living in the world. We wish you good luck in your job, a job you did in a very favourable way! All the best, Nina & Tor
